Are you headed to ACTFL this year? I’m not (and still, sadly, have never been, but this year I’m on “maternity leave” from travel), but if you are, you’ll want to see this exciting, helpful document from the TELL (Teacher Effectiveness in Language Learning) project. In their words, “the mission of the TELL Project is to define what effective language teachers do and facilitate their growth to prepare for, advance and support language learning.”
This PDF helps you plan to get the most effective PD from the ACTFL conference by guiding you to the sessions that target the areas the project has identified as keys to teacher effectiveness. Enjoy, and let me know what you learn!
